Marvel Knights: Iron Man Extremis DVD Review

Synopsis: The Invincible Iron Man May Have Met His Match In The New Serum Known As EXTREMIS!

An ill-fated attempt to re-create the legendary Super-Soldier Serum responsible for making classic heroes such as Captain America leads to the development of Extremis, a military nanotechnology serum that directly taps into the repair center of the body, giving an injured soldier the ability to heal himself at an alarmingly accelerated rate. Conflict erupts when the Extremis serum is injected into members of the local domestic militia, including Mallen, a soldier hell-bent on avenging the deaths of his family. When a brief battle between Iron Man and Mallen leaves billionaire Tony Stark in critical condition, it becomes clear that the only way for Stark to defeat the Extremis virus is to use it himself.

Boasting a fresh take on the Iron Man origin, highly acclaimed writing by master storyteller Warren Ellis and the magnificent artistry of Adi Granov, Iron Man: Extremis comes to life with the stellar blend of 2D- and 3D-motion comic animation that only Marvel Knights can deliver!

Review: This is the last of the three released Marvel Knights DVDs, hopefully more will be released soon.  This new series of DVDs collect motion comics of various Marvel comics like Black Panther, Iron Man and the X-Men. 

This story, Iron Man: Extremis, mixes 3D and 2D animation.  Its a great and a great story.  I found it very entertaining after I adapted to the motion comic style of animation.  Hopefully Marvel will go towards straight animation soon!

The special features on this DVD include: A Conversation With Adi Granov, Behind-The-Scenes Look At Marvel Knights Animation, Marvel Super Heroes™: What The —? Starring Iron Man, Visual History Of Iron Man, Exclusive Music Video, Trailers …and More!

Interest Range: Marvel Comics, Iron Man
